A list of quotes genuinely overheard in Bristol

‘Anything you can do, she can do ketter’

Going to Bristol, you hear a lot of incredible things. Whether it's the guy pinging off his nut in the Motion smoking area at 3am or the gobby fresher who won't STFU on the bus into town, pearls of wisdom are ten a penny in the city famed for its High Renaissance Men and gap yah girls.

Having (somehow) survived three madcap years here I've heard a fair few gems along the way. Some of them were overheard on the Lounge dancefloor as rugby sharks circled their prey, others in the ASS Library as the speaker lost all hope of ever finishing their all night essay.

A few of them were gleaned from other writers on The Tab team whilst one or two of them sprung from dear friends of the author himself. All however are genuine and were said by someone in Bristol- no matter how drunk/high/moronic they were at the time…

"I went to this really shit club last night, honestly worst I've ever been to. Have you heard of it? It's called Lizard Lounge, like a Year 6 Disco, yeah, honestly it's just a massive corridor"

Bonus round: Wills

Drunk girl on phone in Wills: "Hey, I'm so lost, I honestly have no idea where I am, think I'm in Cambridge or some shit? There's a quad… Yeah, yeah as soon as we've had sex I want you to call me a cab straight away"

Hall group chat: "Does anyone want to go smoke a J on the croquet lawn?"

"Mate, Wills is like Stowe on acid"
